The north wall contains two unusual splayed round windows set within the thick flint walls, and a round-headed doorway below, which reveal the church's ancient origins. The church occupies a peaceful setting in the village with a well-kept churchyard bordered by a flint wall.

St Peter

Great Walsingham, Norfolk

Great Walshingham is much smaller than its neighbour Little Walshingham, which gets all the attention because of the shrine and other buildings associated with Our Lady of Walshingham.

St Mary

Great Snoring, Norfolk

Although Great Snoring is actually smaller than Little Snoring, its church is bigger and less rustic, reminding us quietly that it was once grander.

St Andrew

Little Snoring, Norfolk

Ancient and quietly awe inspiring in its simplicity; the remote location, the silence inside, the slight smell of damp and the obvious centuries of use speak of a village that has retained its identity for many generations.
